Reforestation in the Spruce Type
1949 Journal of Forestry Pages 349-356, Reforestation in the Spruce Type in the Southern Appalachians, Leon S. Minckler. This is an interesting article about a reforestation research project including a burned-over area on Black Mountain in Pocahontas County, West Virginia. This project location has since been bisected by the Highlands Scenic Highway. This provides easy access to the site for a look at what a spruce planting looks like 60+ years later.
